We are the UK's first Safe to Trade certification body

It’s time to set a standard in food safety for the hospitality industry.

One that shows a business is invested in protecting its customers and one that regulators can trust. Safe to Trade® is an initiative to improve food safety for consumers, here to champion food safety for the whole hospitality industry. Aiming to be the first voluntary food safety assurance scheme designed specifically for the hospitality industry, it sets the benchmark in food safety and hygiene.

Independently and impartially assessed, governed to the highest level, and rigorously aligned to the latest food safety and hygiene regulations, the scheme allows businesses to clearly show their commitment to high standards and effective monitoring. A Safe to Trade® sticker on the door speaks volumes.

For customers, who can rate and monitor businesses online, Safe to Trade® stands for confidence. For regulators, it means the business is closely supported and focused on maintaining high levels of food safety and hygiene compliance. And for the hospitality businesses themselves, they have all the support and guidance they need behind the scenes to make sure they’re safe and hygienic allowing them to delight customers old and new.

Safe to Trade® is the food safety standard that shows the world the hospitality industry is serious about food safety.

We lead the way

Did you know Shield Safety is the first consultancy in the UK to have a Primary Authority partnership with a local authority? (Milton Keynes Council, if you were wondering).

What this means for our customers is that our solution offers them assured regulatory advice that greatly protects them from enforcement action from local authorities.

All they need to do is follow the food safety guidance in the pack to start to enjoy more care-free days and move much closer to a food hygiene rating of five.

  • Aim high and don’t be afraid to fail
  • Respect your colleagues, your work and our customers

Thousands of businesses trust us to protect them and their customers
